Poll: How Many Americans View Transgenderism As A Mental Illness?

A recent YouGov poll asked over 2,000 Americans their thoughts on transgenderism, or gender dysphoria, the belief that you’re a different gender than that of your biological sex. Twenty-one percent of those polled considered transgenderism a “mental illness” and 39% thought of it was a “choice.”

    I dispute the findings based on the fact that conservatives have a tendency to hide their true views from social justice warriors when surveyed.

      They were polling universities.

        Even better.

    Only 21%? WTF?

      It all depends on who was polled, which is why I never trust any poll.

    If wanting to amputate your leg , or wanting to be blinded because you ‘feel’ you should have been born disabled, is a mental illness; then so is wanting to amputate your tits and/or your dick because you ‘feel’ your body doesn’t fit the sex you imagine you ought to have been.

      I identify as feline, and insist people use my preferred pronouns of ‘kitty-kitty.’ I spend my days laying in the sun and chasing rodents. I spend tens of thousands of dollars on plastic surgery to get a tail implant and groom my facial hair into whiskers.

      None of this makes me a cat.
